for the pbs news hour. lauren sommer, science and environment reporter. and josh richman, bay area news group political reporter. josh, let's start with you. all of a sudden it seems like california, which was in the depths, is now rolling in money. and there's more taxes, we've passed proposition 30. i can't believe there's that much of a turn-around. is there? >> well, there is a turn-around. i wouldn't say we're rolling in money. i've never seen a state so happy to a $1.9 billion deficit over the next year and a half. that's basically where we're at. now, you have to look at that deficit, even though it's the size of wyoming's entire budget, in the context of a $42 billion deficit and $6 billion deficit, we've worn it down over time. with the passage of prop 30 last week, we have money coming in for the next several years to support education, k-12 education, college education and also to help out balancing out some of the mope that's needed by counties for the realignment of the criminal justice system. >> do you think prop 30 was the main reason that the deficit is lower? or is it the fa
remains cheap is by workers very little. but as you say there are environment externallalities as economists like to call it. the ways in which the food companies push out the environmental costs of what it is that they produce. they push out the healthcare costs, when we buy a dollar burger built into that dollar is not the long term healthcare cost of eating foods that is high in salt and fat but these are the ways that corporations manage to avoid the full costs. >> gavin: you talked about $200 hamburger. has there been actual work through the economics of a hamburger? >> yes the 200-dollar burger is an idea that came from a bunch of researchers in india. if this burger comes from a cow that was grazed on land that once upon a time was rain forest we can factor in the loss ecoservice and that's just the footprint. that does not include the low wages that are paid in the food industry or fields where even today we have workers who are living in conditions of modern day slavery. they're growing the tomatoes that end up in our burgers. the $200 hamburger is just $200 because of
know white house environment -- involvement was not an isolated incident. the energy and commerce committee of the house of representatives, e-mails specifically refer to joe biden and his staff advocating for solyndra, the solar panel company that received $528 million in loan guarantees before declaring bankruptcy in september of 2011. solyndra was rushed through in september of 2009 so that vice president joe biden could appear at the opening on september 4th. on august 31st, days before and, a communications aide to the vice president asked them to speed this up and there was pushed back from career staff at the office of management and budget. kevin carroll was chief of the office of management and budget energy staff, quote, i would prefer this announcement be postponed. this is the first loan guarantee and we should have a full review with all hands on deck to make sure we get it right. they didn't get it right and five hundred twenty-eight million taxpayer dollars were lost. it could be seen that the energy loan guarantees and a notoriously unsuccessful record. of the 33 e
. this is not going to happen overnight, but you have to have an environment that allows it to happen. i think congress has to do something. they have to do something to bring fha in. gerri: that idea, you know, helping low-income people, forget about it. i want to ask you quickly, what is really a p effort going on to make people wat to keep fha. here is shaun donovan saying that they have weathered the storm by taking the most aggressive and sweeping action in the history of reform. trying to make the point today that we have more money coming. everything is going to be okay. americans, go back to eep, keep sending us your taxpayer dollars. >> absolutely not. what they are not mentioning, and they did this a year ago when they came out with a report, they knew the projected house price numbers were completely wrong. they basically ignore that. then they made a correction this time to the tune of $10 billion. well, this time they are using interest rates frojuly, and they are basically saying that mortgage rates are going to double by the third quarter of 2014. well, there was a little event
is a process put into place that will force us to get tax reform done. i believe we have an environment that will lend itself to us really doing that. it will be an extraordinary thing. you are right. it will not be easy. because -- you be, the federal government is still facing extraordinary deficits. i mean, we have a trillion-dollar-a-year deficit. we have to keep that in mind so that when the speaker talks about putting revenues on the table that in return, we actually can tell the people of this country that we are going to stop doing what we are doing and actually fwin to pay down the debt. so the tax code, i believe is the tool for us to grow. if we can implement pro-growth tax return, we will see entrepreneurs, investors put their money to work and grow this economy, create more jobs. that's -- that will be a significant piece of trying to go and manage down this debt and deficit. so all of the stars can aline if we can actually come together, set aside the differences and decide we are going to deliver a result for the people. >> greta: is there any cultural adjustment we can d
changing rapidly as a factor in the environment is to knowledge across the board, primarily information technology in various manifestations and that seems like a drastic reshaping, but also can have effects on where the apparent power resources, traditional kinds of nontraditional kinds. although we often highlight the potential for empowered individuals can go around and cause havoc using new technologies and new dangers and threats, there's a new bond film out. every bond film has featured some transnational nonstate actor going on with the technology causing havoc. i'm not sure how terribly new threat that is. new technologies seem to reinforce the power of existing orders. if you think of the degree to which the national ecological revolution has reenergized the north american energy markets is fundamentally reset politics towards the traditional powers in the west rather than away from them come when you think about drones in the war on terror and the degree to which technology has allowed a tight footprint that is far more effective in many respects than the specific task of gett
far. just because no matter what, i know that he is in an environment that he is surrounded by that makes him very safe. i'll get all teary. but, you know, i just -- he's my heart. he's my world. i just -- he's just my baby. >> mommy? we're going to decorate the cake for you. >> reporter: christina shared these intimate photos and home movies, and that bond between them shines through. she has built her world around max, literally. writing and recording at this studio at home to be with her son as much as she can. >> reporter: okay. >> that was for my special -- >> reporter: i'll never forget that. that was so great! the etta james picture. >> me and cher. photo booth style. >> reporter: i love it. this is where the magic happens? >> yep, this is where all the create consistityist. >> reporter: the studio to collaborate would her new friends from "the voice." she and adam worked together last year on tir number one hit, "moves like j and she recruited blake for one tune. and she brought celo on board, too. we caught them backstage as they got ready to debut their song. and t
that is impacted. >> you've written that climate change has little to do with the state of the environment, but much to do with the state of capitalism and transforming the american economic system and you see an opening with sandy, right? >> i do see an opening because, you know, whenever you have this kind of destruction there has to be a reconstruction and what i documented in the shock doctrine is that these right-wing think tanks leak the american enterprise institute and the cato institute and heritage foundation, they historically have gotten very, very good at seizing these moments of opportunity to push through their wish lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill
in the foot at a time when the global environment is much more difficult. see what is happening in europe, in the middle east and china. secondly, we just had an election, ali. the message, one of the messages of the election was one of shared responsibility and farrer burden sharing. it's a period in which the rich have done extremely well. not just on the up side, but also in terms of being protected on the down side. >> fin finally and importantly, the economic arguments against this while they'll be valid at higher tax rates are not valid here. so if you look at the hand that president has, it is stronger than what the republicans and i think both of them will want to seek some sort of compromise. >> sounds so reasonable. let's bring stephen moore in. he is a writer at the "wall street journal." he's conservative. stephen, do you agree? are republicans ready to strike a deal with the president if it means giving up the bush tax cuts for the wealth. >> i they have dug in on this. >> i don't know, ali. i listen to this conversation. i feel like i'm living in france. i mean i just don't
to day livelihood in plays like west virginia, louisiana. while their environment is being destroyed, if you think about louisiana as a state that is being literally destroyed by the industry that employs a good number of the people there. so every mechanism in that state is designed to protect an industry that's destroying the state. but people as real lives are tied to it. even democrats, someone like jay rockefeller who is considered a great prerogative when it comes to coal, he's are with the republicans. >> anyone who is going to be elected -- there are certain places where it's the geographic interests override the ideological ones. >> that's why is we need some actually leadership from the president, and others on the really central issues. i mean, look, climate change is the legacy issue of all legacy issues. you know, 100 years from now, the only thing that people are going to look back on 2012 and care about. the fiscal cliff or the -- it's like, you guys the arctic melts and you didn't do anything about it? why is that? >> keystone is one pipeline. the canadian company is
whether we have to compete. you have to benchmark what your tax environment, your regulatory environment, your energy costs. the good news is in terms of getting manufacturing, we're still the world's largest market. when global investors take a look at the u.s., and canada's rate is 15% and hours is 35%, where are you going to site your plant? $1.75 trillion a year, a number that is larger than all but 80 economies in the world. it is not particularly attractive. when this administration refuses to utilize our domestic energy resources, refuses the keystone pipeline which would bring jobs and energy down to america, they reject that. that is not attractive in terms of global investment and job creation. the caller also talked about what caused the deficit then been a lot of charts and graphs dispel some myths. over four years, the total deficit was 5000 $92 billion. the taxes on the wealthy over that same time was $136 billion. all other americans was $544 billion. total cost of the bush tax cuts and the wars was about $1.30 trillion which means 75% of the deficit was caused by other sp
system. so it's awkward to support a group like this. but there is support for it in this environment. the system will dissolve because there's resistance. >> trevor, i often feel when you talk to political operatives on both sides and fundraisers on both sides and donors, there's a strong word, but it's kind of a self hating quality to the people who are participating in the system. they feel trapped. this thing is going to go on and therefore the plaintiff used to it. is that what is sustaining this? >> well, during the course of the campaign i had a chance to talk to a range of major republican donors and even may feel republicans are more interested in the super pacs. the party had embraced them and citizens united. i thought rummy donors say to me, this is terrible. i don't want to rent an unlimited check if this is not our president not to get selected and we need to talk about this after the election. so now i think one of the things that i be doing is certainly untruths are you back around and say are you into changing the system? if you look at it, even the candidates are pri
